ClearBridge Advisors has appointed Scott Glasser as co-chief investment officer.
He joins current chief investment officer Hersh Cohen in oversight of the firm’s investment strategies.
Glasser (pictured) and Cohen were co-managers of the firm’s Appreciation strategy from 1995 to 2009.
“Scott has been an important mentor for our investment staff, and has been instrumental in strengthening the firm’s investment discipline. He is a critical part of our leadership team and will be a driving force in our future success," says Terrence J. Murphy, president of ClearBridge Advisors.
Glasser joined a ClearBridge predecessor in 1993 and has served as portfolio manager since 1994. He has also served as director of research and currently sits on the firm’s management and risk committees. Glasser will remain co-portfolio manager on the ClearBridge Appreciation strategy while Margaret Vitrano will take over co-management of the ClearBridge Large Cap Growth strategy which she will manage with current co-portfolio manager, Peter Bourbeau.
